D r Papa 

This is to let you know I arrived safe in London the 6 instant : 
ever since, I have been in the greatest expectations of a letter 
from M r Crookshanks, who has promised me to get me intro- 
duced to M r Baker : wether I shall obtain that gentleman's con- 
sent to Marry his daughter seems very doubtful: he may per- 
haps object to my living in north America : if he does I must 
lay aside all thoughts of Miss Baker : the situation of our affairs 
absolutely require my residence in Maryland: and I can not 
sacrifice the future aggrandisement of our family to a woman : 
America is a growing country: in time it will & must be inde- 
pendent. As soon as I am introduced to M r Baker & know his 
determination I shall make you acquainted with it. 

Very good brood Mares I make no doubt can be had for 25 or 
thirty pound : the most difficult task is to procure a good, sober, 
understanding groom : the having a gardiner or other servant to 
take care of them on their passage will be merely accidental, 
besides unsafe, as either the ignorance or sloth of such a fellow 
might be fatal to the Mares. If I can procure two good Mares 
I intend to get them covered :

no more than what others pay. 

I shall take care to deliver y r message to M r Webb : or leave 
at his house an extract of that part of y r letter that relates to 
him. My friends think I look full as well in a wig as in my 
own hair. 

I shall endeavour to right Huson if possible: but I am 
affraid all my trouble will be to no purpose. I wish you the 
enjoyment of y r health & pray to God for it. I am D r Papa

8 Decemb, 1763. [101] 

D r Papa, 

M r Perkins has informed me that a packet is to sail for New 
York next Saturday: & tho' I wrote to you the 12 of last month 
& have nothing new or material to say yet as my letters seem to 
afford you some pleasure I am willing you should enjoy it as 
often as possible. 

Cap* Kelty & Hanson are arrived: the Cane Spirits have 
been delivered for w h I return you my thanks my fate is yet 
undecided. I wrote this very day to M r Baker at Southampton : 
I should have wrote sooner but the expectation of a letter from 
M r Crookshanks w h is not yet come to hand, made me put it off 
till now. M r Baker I hear has had two wives & Children by 
both, his daughter therefore will not probably have so great a 
fortune as M r Crookshanks imagined: the probability of my 
succeeding is the greater : women entitled to large fortunes are 
not easily persuaded to leave England. 

My Lady Webb has had the generosity & benevolence to con- 
tinue to M r Ireland the annuity paid by her Husb d Sir Thomas : 
instead of £30 she will remit annually to M r Ireland by M r 
Perkins 30 guineas. I am well acquainted with Jos : Webb his 
youngest son who has promised at my desire to introduce me to 
his mother. I shall return her M r Ireland's thanks for the con-

tinuation of the charity & if an oportunity offers endeavours to 
get the additional sum of 10 guineas paid to his son. 

In yours of the 20 Septb r you promised to send me by Kelty 
the Genealogy. I have seen Kelty, but I forgot to ask him for 
it & perhaps he forgot to deliver it to me. I have rec d no letters 
this long time from M r Whittcn I shall write to him soon and 
send him the copy of the genealogy if it is arrived with an ex- 
tract of that part of y r letter which relates to Kean Carroll. 
You may expect by Hanson the continuation of Geogans & 
Warner's irish histories as also the natural history of Kam- 
katska if they are published: I have acquainted M r Webb the 
seedsman with y r commission: your instructions for my voy a 
& about the Mares if they can be had at a reasonable rate shall 
be punctually followed : I have given a country gentleman of my 
acquaintance a commission to look out two for me at £25 each: 
their pedigree to be well attested &c. Before the receit of y r 
last I had a plate of our arms ingraved & 200 stamps with only 
my name at the bottom, & had ordered 400 more. I shall leave 
the plate with the ingraver to supply me with more stamps if 
wanted : the plate is too short to have the words you direct in- 
serted. M r Bird thanks you kindly for the Cane Spirits; I 
could not spare him the 2 Doz of Madeira as I have but a small 
quantity left which will be serviceable on ship board. I shall 
make M r Bird some other return for his civilities to me. M r 
Graves my fellow traveller has introduced me to the company 
he generally dines with: they are most of them Parlia* men, 
lawyers, or have had a law education and are men of sense, 
their conversation is instructive & entertaining & tho' the Tav- 
ern bills are pretty high, our quota generally amounting to 8 s 
6 d a head, it would be foolish & mean to decline their company 
on that account. One of these gentlemen got me twice admit- 
tance into the house of commons : the first debate I heard, arose 
upon a motion for an address to his Majesty on his most gracious 
speech : M r Beckf ord the most violent of the opposition said he 
should consider the speech not as the King's but as the Minis- 
ters : that he had been all along & still was of opinion that the

peace was inglorious & inadequate to our successes: words 
directly contradictory of those made use of in the speech: he 
severely reflected on the proclamation for settling our new ac- 
quisitions: he openly declared the present ministry incapable 
of governing, ignorant of geography, arbitrary & despotick. 
M r Pitt made a long speech no less severe but more cautious : 
the peace he thought inadequate: that the greatest advantages 
had been given up to the French without an equivalent : that a 
total exclusion from the Newfoundland fishery should have been 
insisted on: for his part whatever notions people might enter- 
tain, he could safely say he did not censure for the sake of cen- 
suring or from any ill humour : that he entertained the highest 
opinion of those ministers who could derive advantages from a 
peace from which he himself could not foresee any: far from 
being fond of power or a ministerial influence he was resolved to 
shun both: it tis but just that those ministers who made the 
peace should be continued in office to improve their own work: 
should I, contrary to my wish, once more assume the cares of 
government a disapointed nation would attribute to my par- 
tiality & Dislike to the peace the small advantages derived to 
their country in proportion to the vast expense of blood & treas- 
ure. He very artfully touched upon the present divisions & dis- 
tracted state of the nation. I am really of opinion we are 
divided more by names than things : there was a time & that too 
not very distant (meaning his own administration) when the 
nation was all unanimity, to what is the present disunion 
owing? are not the principles of men now in power the same 
with those out of power ? are they not revolution principles, the 
principles of liberty, agreeable to this constitution ? let there be 
a kind of political test established, let it require the highest 
veneration for Magna Charta, express the strongest aversion to 
false imprisonment, a profound regard for the Habeas corpus 
Act the great protector on english liberty, is there even a Min- 
ister who would scruple to subscribe such a test ? and if he does 
what danger is to be apprehended from his administration, 
unless his hand subscribes what his heart, what his conduct dis-

claims. MX Pitt's manner of speaking indeliberate yet ani- 
mated, his voice distinct tho ? not loud, his words bold, some- 
times too pompous, his thoughts deep, his imagination truly 
sublime. 

The House of Commons has come to the following resolu- 
tions : the North Briton N° 45 voted a seditious libel tending to 
raise traiterous insurrections: a member of Parlia t writing a 
seditious libel has no privilege: the North Briton N° 45 to be 
burnt by the hands of the common hangman. It was accord- 
ingly burnt some days ago, the mob rose, insulted & slightly 
wounded M r Harley the Sheriff & rescued a part of the paper 
from the flames: this affair is now under the consideration of 
both houses. One of M r Wilke's actions against Wood was yes- 
terday determined in the Court of Common Pleas. After 15 
hours hearing the Jury which was special withdrew & brought 
in their verdict for the Plaintiff with £1000 damages & full 
costs of suit. M r Wilkes is out of danger but will not be able to 
attend the house these 3 weeks: the majority will not proceed 
against him any further till he can attend in his place : I say no 
further for certainly the above resolutions affect M r Wilkes : if 
he is proved the author of the North Briton he will be expelled 
the house, and no one here makes the least [doubt] but that he 
will be expelled : his story is pregnant with incidents : every day 
brings something fresh : yesterday one S MacDun was taken into 
custody for intending to assassinate M r Wilkes : he is a Scotsman 
& a madman and lately let loose from a private mad house: he 
will be brought to day to the bar of the house of Commons : 

The Acco* Cap* Kelty gives me of y r health affords me great 
satisfaction : I hope your wrist is quite recovered : the Cap* told 
me how sensibly you was affected at hearing I had the small 
pox : during my illness what gave me the most pain till I was 
out of danger, was the thoughts what sorrow and affliction you 
would feel at the news of my death: I am now enjoying my 
health very well & wishing you a continuation of yours I am

pox. I desire to be remembered to John Darnall Ric: Croxall

but that in these times of liberty he should fill up his words : a

informed whether Miss Baker is th* sensible sweet temperd 
Lady you Represent her to be Believe me these are Essential 
to y r future happyness for without Domestick Peace & Content 
Matrimony must prove a Curse instead of a Blessing you have 
reason from her Education to Place Confidence in her virtue. 
As to her Fortune whatever it may be you know it does not with 
me enter into any sort of Comparison w th virtue good nature & 
Good Sense. I was so full to you on this Subject in my letters 
of the 1 st of Sep r 1762 and June 22 : 1763 th* I must begg you 
to refer to them I only add that I hereby again Bind myself to 
Comply with what I promised in the first Relating to the settle- 
ment to be made on y r Wife, knowing this letter will be as 
Binding on me as any Bond or Settlement Executed by me. 
Should the Lady Bring you a Considerable fortune w h you say 
you have Reason to Expect from the manner of her Education, 
you need not Apprehend y r Children or family will be Hurt by 
the settlement I propose in Case the Lady should survive you, 
unless you should turn out a spend thrift w h from y r Past Con- 
duct I have not the least Grounds to Surmise: for the growing 
Int: on the Ladys fortune with the Principall will be a very

I have long deprived myself of the Pleasure. But as next Aprill 
I shall Enter into my Grand Climaterick, you must not wonder 
th* in my Turn, I should grow impatient. I long to see Miss 
Baker with you, as you paint her in so Amiable a Light, But 
see you I must, & when my eyes are Closed live where you 
Please, I think Maryland more agreable to sollid Happyness 
than any Country I have seen it is plentifull & the Climate

made such an Overture to you had he not thought you deserved 
the Lady & th t she was deserving of you a View to y r Mutuall 
Happyness I am Convinced induced him to propose her to you. 
He as you tell me Candidly told you he was not Acquainted 
with M r Baker's Circumstances but Judged he must be a Man 
of Great Wealth by the unlimited Credit he allows his Daugh- 
ter ; Y r Prudence therefore I doubt not directed you to Enquire 
into his Circumstances before you waited on him. You will be 
informed whether his fortune Consists in Plantations & Negroes 
in the Islands or in Cash. If in Cash the settlement I think 
should only be for the Fortune paid downe. If he Proposes 
beside a fortune in hand to settle on his Daughter after his 
Death his Lands & Negroes it would be well if they Could be 
settled at least on her Male issue by you & the enjoyment in 
Case of y r Death to the Lady during life, in w h Case no Security 
Can be Required for the Eeall Estate or Settlement stipulated 
by you for the same. If you find it will not be Prudent to 
make such a Proposall you must wait a future time to make it 
to the Lady in Case you marry her. I know not M r Bakers age. 
Even if old he may marry again, this Consideration will in- 
cline you (if you Can adroitly) to get his Estate settled on the 
Lady. At this distance were I acquainted with every Circum- 
stance I Could but advise & my advice in all Probability may 
Come too late, Incidents may arise w h I cannot foresee there-

[John Baker to Chas Carroll of Garrollton] 

Bath Thursday 15 Decemb r 1763. [104] 

S r 

It was not till late last night at my return from Bristol to 
this place that I was honoured with yours of the 8 instant, which 
was sent me from my house near Southampton, else good man- 
ners would not have suffered you to wait so long for an answer 
to it. 

Tis true S r I have not the pleasure of personally knowing you 
tho I am far from being altogether a stranger to the name of y r 
family ; but it is impossible for me to give a precise answer to 
y r proposal, tho' such satisfaction as I can give you, I will. 

As to what you suggest of my having perhaps already pitched 
upon some other Gentleman for my daughter, believe me S r tis 
a matter I had not yet begun to think of and perhaps but for so 
unexpected an incident as the present should not for a long time 
to come have at all thought about it, she being now but in her 
seventeenth year, which I think upon the whole, rather too 
early to engage in the married state ; so that on this particular 
head I can give you, I believe all the satisfaction you desire: 
neither her mother or myself having ever turned our thoughts 
on any particular gentleman, or indeed considered the matter 
as yet calling for our attention; and I have great reason to 
believe her own affections to be as utterly disengaged as they 
were ten years ago. 

As to your fortune S r I have some reason to suppose it such 
as I could have no objection to, and indeed to be far more con- 
siderable than my daughter might be (what the world calls) 
intitled to : so that should every other circumstance be agreeable 
to both parties, the objection in that article is more likely, as I 
take it to proceed from y r part than from mine, and even if the 
great liking you seem to have conceived for her should be power- 
ful enough to induce yourself to dispense with what another 
would insist on, what certainty is there that your father would 
so easily be brought to dispense with it too ? 

Y r father S r who is at so considerable a distance & yet with-

out whose approbation I dare say neither would you yourself 
nor on any the most advantageous terms woud I, chuse to have 
effected what you seem so desirous of. 

Thus you S r (which is all that yet can be) I am not as yet 
sensible of any objections I should have to your proposal: what 
may hereafter arise from a farther enquiry into each other's

In my last of the 8 Decemb r I let you know of my having 
wrote to M r Baker : a week after I received the enclosed answer. 
I repaired immediately to Bath ; my Physician had advised me 
to drink the waters, and I think I find myself benefited by 
them: for this some time past I have felt a gradual decay cf 
strength and wasting of flesh attended with unusual low spirits : 
my nerves are weak and my whole frame very delicate, tho' my 
lungs are not the least affected : my Bath Physician has ordered 
a regimen which I am to stick to for 5 or 6 weeks & he doubts 
not of my being restored again to my usual strength. I am to 
drink every morning in bed a pint of asses milk, to breakfast & 
sup on milk & to use the cold bath twice a week : pray dont let 
my indisposition give you any concern as it is thought not the 
least dangerous & I find myself growing better.

M r Baker left Bath 2 or three days after my arrival : he gave 
me an invitation to come and see him at his seat near South- 
ampton: I accepted the invitation and went from Bath to Grove 
Place where I remained a full fortnight. M r Baker is a man 
of sense and honour : his second wife the mother of the young 
lady is living, she is no favourite of mine, nor I of hers, if the 
daughter's temper ressembles the mother's I shall leave England 
next May or June : Miss Baker will come to England in April : 
my returning to Paris is therefore unnecessary. M r Baker pro- 
poses going next May or June to S* Croix, in which Island his 
estate lays : in his absence M r Tuite with whom he is much con- 
nected, will be intrusted and empowered to act in his stead; 
from the enclosed paper which is in M r Tuite's own hand writ- 
ing you will be able to form some judg* of M r Baker's circum- 
stances, for Tuite is as well acquainted with them as Baker 
himself. In talking of the settlement, in case the match takes 
place, M r Baker told me he intended to leave his estate real & 
personal equally divided among all his children his 4 sons and 
daughter: that gentleman's affairs at present are somewhat 
embarrassed: he owes £St 10000 which he was obliged to take 
up to clear, settle, and plant his sugar lands: this he himself 
acknowledged; from this circumstance and from several other 
limits I plainly understood I was not to expect any ready money 
with his daughter at least no considerable sum: he hinted that 
if you should not be contented with an equal division between 
all the children to take place at his death, a certain sum might 
be agreed upon, as a portion for the young lady to carry interest 
till the principal should be payed off. he will undoubtedly expect 
a great part of y r estate to be settled on me and the issue of the 
marriage, but these matters I leave entirely to y r own discretion 
& pleasure. I shall just here insert a few general terms which 
M r Graves at my request was so obliging as to set down upon 
paper: I have shown them to Baker, he read them & said he 
would return an answer when I received one to my letter from 
Paris : as I wrote in the latter end of Septb r and sent a copy of 
that letter in the beginning of Octob r I may expect an answer 
from you in February or March.

General terms 

I think I mentioned in my last the company or set M r Graves 
has introduced me to : perhaps you may be desirous to know who 
they are: the following are the principal men: M r Hussey 
attorney general to the queen: M r Barington my lord Baring- 
ton's brother and one of the welch Judges, M r Prat member of 
Pari* and nephew to the chief Justice. M r Camphion mem br of 
Pari* and sometimes Doctor Hay favours us with his company. 
M r Hussey has desired me when I return to Maryland to send 
the company a buck : as I shall be detained here longer than he 
imagines I should be greatly obliged to you if you could send 
me one by the first oportunity;. it must be cut up into several 
joints, each joint covered with bay salt and closely packed in a 
separate box: he says he has eat many sent from Virginia in 
that manner which proved exceeding good. I desire my cousin 
Each: Darnall may be intrusted with this commission Pray 
present her with my compliments and acknowledge* for the 
regard and tender concern she seems to bare me. I shall answer 
her letter which I have just received by Hanson: you no doubt 
hav heard of M r Wilke's fate: he has been expelled from the 
house of commons, but took care previously to withdraw to 
Prance it was said great wagers were laid wether he would 
return or not before the meeting of the Partial I would liks 
to have laid a considerable sum that he would not return so 
persuaded was I that he never intended to return. 

N : B : the 6 $ C* will not be thought sufficient settlement I 
am told that settlements are frequently made at the rate of 8 sP 
0* the going to America will no Doubt be made a reason for 
demanding a larger settlement on my Wife in case of my death : 
a woman that abandons father, mother, & all her relations out of 
love for her husband deserves a handsome jointure. I beg to be 
remembered to my friends in particular to John Darnall, Rich : 
Oroxall & Capt. Carroll. 

I have sent you a copy of M r Baker's letter not caring to part 
with the original. I have not as yet seen M r Diggs as I am but 
lately arrived in town, you may depend on my treating him

have spoke to M r Bird about the toko man : he will endeavor to

good workman can be engaged to leave England on such terms, 
as they earn a great deal of money & have constant employ*:

them all equal in their fortune. 

What sum as a portion to his daughter will M r B. absolutely

In consideration of the above supposing M r C's father to be

Child or Children? 

And Provided there be no son of such marriage but one or 
more daughters how much of the above settlement to go to such

By the votes I sent you, you will see the different taxes that 
have just been laid on the colonies: the Merchants have peti- 
tioned against the taking off the drawbacks upon coarse linens 
alledging it to be of great detriment to the trade of this kingdom 
that it will occasion the setting up linen manufactures in Worth 
America : I am informed that M r Greenville said in answer to 
the Merchants that the grievances complained of should be 
examined into, and if found liable to the above exceptions, some 
other tax less detrimental might be substituted in its stead. 

Should my marriage with Miss Baker not take place I shall 
leave England in the Autumn: I impatiently wish to be with 
you. I am rather of opinion that I shall not succeed with Miss 
Baker, supposing even upon a better acquaintance I should find 
she answers the character all her friends give her : the going to 
America is a prodigious objection to young ladies: should Miss 
Baker's good sense & inclinations overcome this objection, her 
mother will never be brought to consent to her daughter's part- 
ing from her especially as there will be little hope of their ever 
meeting again in this life: had I known the mother before I 
opened the affair to M r Baker I should have entirely dropt the 
thoughts of that marriage. 

I have sent you the gentlemen's register instead of Killers, 
as it is much more perfect & correct. Pray present my kind 
compliments to my Cousin Bach. Darnall & to her daughters :

same month you have as full and as circumstantial an account 
as I can give of M r Baker's circumstances & family: all I could 
say upon that subject at present would be useless repetition. 
M r Baker & his Lady will be in town in about a fortnight : but 
not to lose time I shall write to him & inclose a copy of your

municated : matrimony is an affair of too much weight & im- 
portance to be precipitated : it will require some time to know 
the young lady's temper & disposition: but you may be assured 
I shall use all the expedition consistent with prudence & decency 
to bring the affair to a speedy conclusion. I have always been 
and still am as desirous as ever to return: and as the match is 
concluded or broke off that minute will I prepare for my voy a . 
I told MJ Baker at our first enterview that my interest and 
more particularly my inclination led me to live in America ; he 
hinted that during your life there was no necessity for my 
returning home. I made him this answer. You know little of 
me, Sir, and do me injustice to imagine that I can be prevailed 
on to live absent from a father, whom I most tenderly love, to 
whose company & conversation I would willingly sacrifice every 
other enjoy* should I not discover the utmost ingratitude & 
cruelty in complying with so unnatural a proposal, even sup- 
posing my Father's consent to it could be obtained ? & indeed, 
Sir, his consent would give me great concern & uncaring as it 
would betray a cool indifference, which I should merit, were I 
even to suffer such a proposal to be made. 

This short & firm reply convinced M r Baker he must adopt 
this alternative either to lose his daughter if the match should 
take place, or brake it off immediately, as he did not think 
proper to do the latter, he was then willing to make a sacrifice 
of his fondness to his daughter's welfare & happiness : But since 
my acquaintance with M rs Baker wether influenced by her or by 
a discovery of something disagreeable in me, he has shewn rather 
too much indifference to be thought desirous of the marriage: 
this may be only surmise or perhaps owing to his temper, or to 
care & disappointments: be it as it will in my letter I shall 
acquaint him of the settlement you propose to make, the neces- 
sity of my returning to Maryland and that too as soon as possi- 
ble after the marriage: and desire him to recommend to the 
earnest consideration of his Lady wether she can sacrifice 
maternal fondness to her daughters inclinations : wether or no I 
can prevail upon the young lady to accompany me to America

will depend upon her affection for, or her dislike to me : But if 
the mother thinks she is not mistress of sufficient resolution to 
surmount the parting with her daughter, the affair is at an end 
& and you may expect me in this next summer or in the fall: 
I chuse rather to forego my own happiness than make a Parent 
miserable. Believe me to be D r Papa

SECOND REGIMENT, MARYLAND VOLUNTEER 
INFANTRY. 1 



The second Maryland regiment was raised in the City of 
Baltimore by the government and the field officers were ap- 
pointed by the President. On leaving Baltimore for the North 
Carolina campaign it numbered 953 men. Shortly after arriv- 
ing at Newbern, 1ST. 0., the Colonel resigned, and Lieutenant- 
Colonel Duryee commanded the regiment through Burnside's 
campaign in North Carolina. 

In the Maryland campaign, the Second Maryland took an 
active part in the battles of South Mountain and Antietam. 
At Antietam it was the first regiment to assault the stone (Burn- 
side's) bridge at 10 a. m. on the 17th September, 1862. It 
made many attempts without the support of artillery to carry 
the bridge on which was concentrated the fire of Longstreet's 
artillery and rifleman, and in consequence suffered many 
casualties. 

Jacob Eugene Duryee was a private in Company F, Seventh 
regiment, NTew York State Militia, when it was mustered into 
the United States service April 17th, 1861. He was appointed 
First Lieutenant, Company Gr, Fifth Regiment, N. Y. Vols., 

1 Condensed from documents presented to the Society by General Duryee, 
which contain numerous references to the " War of the Rebellion Records " 
and other sources, as to the services of the regiment.

MARYLAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE, 



May 10, 1861 ; was promoted Captain, and on September 21st, 
1861, was appointed Lieutenant-Colonel, Second Maryland 
Regiment Volunteers by President Lincoln. On March 13th, 
1865, was brevetted Colonel, and Brigadier-General " for gal- 
lant and meritorious services." Col. Duryee was in command 
of the Second Maryland during the campaigns in North Caro- 
lina, under General Burnside ; in the Army of Virginia under 
General Pope and the Maryland campaign under General Mc- 
Clellan, doing double duty as Colonel and Lieutenant-Colonel. 
In the short space of less than three weeks he lead his regiment 
through five battles and many severe and hazardous skirmishes, 
his losses amounting to 212 men on the battlefield, and more 
than that number by sickness, owing to the fact that when 
the regiment was raised there were no physical examinations. 

Lieutenant-Colonel Duryee had been appointed Colonel by 
General Burnside during the North Carolina campaign, subject 
to the approval of Governor Bradford, who had given him his 
Lieutenant-Colonel's commission to date from September 21st, 
1861. A petition for the confirmation of this appointment 
was sent to the Governor signed by all of the officers of the 
regiment, and strongly urged by the Brigade Commander, Gen- 
eral Reno, and the commanding officer of the Department, Gen- 
eral Burnside. The Governor refused, his reason being that 
the Lieutenant-Colonel was a native of a northern state. As 
the regiment had never been in action before Lieutenant-Colonel 
Duryee took command, and as he had led it through seven en- 
gagements and seen it reduced in number to less than a com- 
pany, he felt that great injustice had been done and tendered 
his resignation by the advice of General A. E. Burnside. 

Colonel Duryee's statement of the reasons for his resignation 
follow, verbatim: 

Shortly after the Battle of Antietam I decided to resign as 
I had heard that Governor Bradford had been on the field, and 
had ignored us, not even visiting the regiment or our cowshed 
hospital where so many brave Maryland soldiers lay wounded 
and dying. We needed the Governor's sympathy, besides our 



MARYLAND VOLUNTEER INFANTRY. 



43 



wants were many, especially for medical supplies, etc. When 
I saw the governors of other States, Governor Morgan of New 
York, Curtin of Pennsylvania, Andrews of Massachusetts, and 
many others doing their best to alleviate the sufferings of the 
soldiers of their respective States, my heart went out to my 
poor men who had fought so bravely. Then to feel that I was 
entirely unable to help them at this time of their great distress, 
made the matter to me very trying. 

It came very hard upon the regiment as we only had our 
good surgeon Theodore Dimon, to rely upon. Our very able 
assistant surgeon, Joseph E. Beatty, had been detailed by Gen- 
eral Reno and left in charge of the hospital on the battlefield 
of Chantilly, about two weeks previous, and had not yet re- 
turned. In fact, he did not report for duty until after I had 
left the regiment. Owing to these unfortunate circumstances, 
great responsibilities fell on the shoulders of Surgeon Dimon 
who did all a man could do for the suffering men. When there 
were so many that needed prompt attention, it was only possible 
to give to very few the proper care they should have had, owing 
to the great number of the wounded. 

After giving the matter iserious reflection, I made out my 
resignation and went to the Headquarters of General Burnside. 
The General received me kindly. I then told him of my in- 
tention, at the same time handing him the paper. He promptly 
returned it, asking very decidedly and firmly that we would 
not accept it. I then said : " General, at reveille this morning 
less than 100 men answered the roll call, out of 953 men who 
had reported to you in North Carolina for duty in April, not 
five months ago. 

" In these three strenuous campaigns just ended, I have com- 
manded the regiment in every battle and engagement, actually 
filling two positions, while the Colonel who had been com- 
missioned by the Governor and had never commanded, in fact 
had never seen the regiment, was in Baltimore during these 
most trying times." 

To this statement of facts the General patiently listened, 



44 



MARYLAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 



but was still obdurate, until I said: "General, did Governor 
Bradford call on you when he visited the field a few days ago ? " 
He replied: " He did not, but I suppose he visited the wounded, 
and dying men of your brave regiment % " When I said : " He 
did not/' the General's countenance seemed to change, now it 
showed deep sympathy, he said : " Colonel, I cannot accept 
your resignation, but let me sleep over it and come again to 
Headquarters to-morrow morning, and I will give you an 
answer." 

The next morning I went to Headquarters for General Burn- 
side's answer. The General took me cordially by the hand, 
saying: "I have carefully gone over during the night, your 
request of yesterday. I accept your resignation. I see no 
other course, for as matters appear to me now, you would not 
get any assistance from the Governor to help you recruit the 
regiment." I replied that I had never seen Governor Brad- 
ford. All correspondence in regard to his commissioning me 
Colonel had been done by the Generals over me and by the 
officers of the regiment. That I was under the impression 
that it would be sometime before the regiment would be engaged 
in very active service as our ranks had been so thinned out. 
In this I was right, for the regiment was not engaged in any 
battle for over a year, with the exception of the unfortunate 
battle of Fredericksburg, December 12th, 1862. 

General Burnside said " Colonel, I accept your resignation 
with regret, and especially that it should be entirely owing to 
the unjustified treatment you and your regiment have received 
from the Executive of the State of Maryland." I then returned 
to camp, formed the remnant of the few brave soldiers left in 
the regiment and bade them farewell, shaking hands with every- 
one. I could plainly see by the expression on the face of every 
man that they all regretted my going fully as much as I did 
leaving them. 

The fatalities of the regiment were : Killed or died of wounds, 
5 officers and 84 men; from accidents, disease and in prison, 
3 officers and 148 men; total 240.

Anthony LeCompte 1 was born in Picardy, France, and 
died during the autumn of 1673, in Dorchester County, 
Maryland. In 1655-6, he appears in the province of Mary- 
land, as the following entry among the land records attests : 
" I Antoine LeCompte do give all my right and title to 
Ishmael Wright and my man's Henry Mites right and title 
which is the 200 acres due to me. As witness my hand, 
7th February, 1655." 

(Signed) Anthoine Le Compt. 

(L. O., Q. 440.441). 

In 1658-9, Anthony LeCompte appears as patentee of 
a free-hold in Calvert County, known as " Compton," and 
containing 75 acres, originally surveyed 8 August, 1651, 
for Ishmael Wright, on the North side of the Patuxent 
River (Calvert County Rent Rolls). Ishmael Wright ac- 
quired title to " Compton " in consideration of the trans- 
porting of himself and Anne his wife, into the Province, 
and assigned the same to Antoine LeCompte, 11 Feb- 
ruary, 1658 (L. 0., Q. 401). 

Under an entry of 12 March 1658, one Arthur Wright 
demands land for transporting Katharine his wife, Wil- 
liam Squire, Thomas Middleton, Elizabeth Holston: and 
Thomas Raymond, Barbara Crouch, Thomas Jones, trans- 
ported by Antoine LeCompte. Warrant then issued to 
lay out for Arthur Wright and Anthoine Le Compt 700 
acres upon " the Eastern Shore " (L. O., Q. 440. 441). 

" Whereas, on the 12 March 1658, warrant issued for 
700 acres of land upon the Eastern Shore to Anth°. 
Lecompte and Arthur Wright, ret. 29 September foil. — 
which said warrant being given up, the said Anthony Le- 
Compte hath taken new warrant in his own name. War- 
rant inde for 700 acres on the Eastern Shore, return 25 
December next, to the said Anthony LeCompt." (ib. iv. 61). 

On 13 August 1659, there was laid out for Anthony Le

Compte of this Province, planter, a parcel of land called 
" St. Anthoine " (or " Antonine"), lying on the East side 
of the Chesapeake Bay, and on the South side of the Chop- 
tank River, in Home's Bay, containing 800 acres (L. O., 
iv. 244: Dorchester County Rent Eolls). 

The aforesaid tract was acquired by Anthony LeCompte, 
17 January 1659, "in consideration that Anthony Le 
Compte hath transported Thomas Raymond, Barbara 
Crouch, and Thomas Jones into this Province: and hath 
further due to him by assignment of Mary Guilford the 
land (200 acres) due to her for transporting herself and 
Barnes Johnson ; and also, by the assignment of Emperour 
Smith, the land due to him for transporting himself, Rob- 
ert Bailey and William Major. Granted unto said An- 
thony Le Compte the land called " St. Anthony/' on the 
East side of Chesapeake Bay, and the South side of the 
Choptank River, in Home Bay, 800 acres." (L. O., iv, 
181-378). 

Shortly after this, Anthony LeCompte returned to 
France, where he met his future wife, took her over to 
London to be married, and then returned to Maryland. On 
2 March, 1662/3, " came Antonio LeCompte and enters 
four rights, viz*., for his wife Easter, John Goteer, Andrew 
Gundry and Ambrose, for which he demands warrant,* 1 
which was accordingly issued for 200 acres, of date 21 Feb- 
ruary, 1662 (L. O., v. 243). On 22 Eeby. 1664, a 
" Patent of Denization " was granted to Antoine Le 
Compte, his wife and children (Md. Arch, in, 513). 

On 18 March 1662, we find the following entry: "I 
Andrew Skinner of this Province, da alienate, etc. unto 
Mounsier Anthony Compt, land called " Compton," in 
Dividing Creek, on the north side of the Choptank River." 
This tract consisted of 100 acres, in Talbot county, and was 
originally laid out for Andrew Skinner (by assignment 
from James Smith). On 26 April 1663, Anthony Le 
Compte assigned his rights to John Edmondson, who 
assigned the same to James Elvard, merchant (L. O., vn, 
120, 125). 

In the Proceedings of the Maryland Assembly held at 
Patuxent, 24 September, 1657, among the "severall 
charges to be Satisfied by way of Levie out of the County 
of Patuxent," we find a bill allowed to Anthony LeCompte 



MARYLAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 

for killing three wolves, amounting to 300 lbs. of tobacco 
(Md. Arch. i, 365). 

In the Proceedings of April-May, 1669, out of the assess- 
ments of the Province charged to the several counties, there 
were due to Anthony LeCompte, as of Talbot county, 2022 
lbs. of tobacco (ib. u, 231). 

On 6 May, 1669, Anthony LeCompte was appointed a 
Justice of Dorchester County, which office he held until 
1671 (Md. Arch, v, 52-53: Liber C-D, 431). 

The will of Anthony LeCompte, of Dorchester County, 
Maryland, was made 9 September 1673, and filed 25 
October 1673 (Annapolis, Wills I, 562). He leaves to his 
eldest son, John Le Compte, all his " land on the other side 
of the creek, south from my house, with 50 acres I bought 
of Wm. Willoughby " : all the remainder of his lands, 
equally, to his sons Moses, Philip and Anthony LeCompte : 
to his eldest daughter Hester Le Compte, 8 cows : to Nicho- 
las Trippe, one cow: and appoints his wife Hester Le 
Compte sole executrix. The will was witnessed by Jacob 
Seth, Jno. Snookes and Margaret Bryant. 

Anthony Le Compte married 11 July 1661, in London, 
England, Esther Dottando (or, Dotlando). She was a 
native of Dieppe, in Normandy, France. The marriage 
record is given in the register of St. Helen's, Bishopsgate, 
London, as follows : " Anthony LeCompte of the parishe 
of Macke neere Callis in France & Esther Dottando of 
Deepe in Prance weare mar'ed," 11 July, 1661. 

A few months after Anthony LeCompte' s decease, his 
widow Esther, married (1674), " Monsieur " Mark Cor- 
dea, formerly of St. John's, in St. Mary's County, an inn- 
holdcr and merchant, and owner of " St. Elizabeth's 
Manor," which he purchased from John Nuthall, Jr., of 
St. MJary's County, gentleman (Annapolis, Chancery 
Records CD, i, 273). 

In Bacon's Laws of Maryland (1674), chapter xn, 
(original Libers: C & WH, 240: WH, 123: WE & L, 
86), appears the petition for naturalization on the part of 
Hester Cordea, et ah, as follows: "Petition of . . . 
Hester Cordea [born] at Deepe in Normandy, John Le 
Count, Mosses Lecount, Phillip Lacount, Anthony Lacount, 
all the sonns of Anthony Lacount borne at Picardie in the 
Kingdom of Prance ; Hester Lacount, Katherine Lacount, 
daughters to the said Anthony Lacount, and both sonns and

vited to come and dwell within this Province by and upon 
confidence of Your Lordships declaration of the second of 
July 1649/' etc. They were naturalized under the Act 
passed 6 June 1674. 

On 17 July 1680, there was issued a subpoena to Mark 
Cordea and Hester his wife, executrix of the last will and 
testament of Anthony LeCompte, deceased, to answer the 
bill of complaint of Henry Fox and Hester his wife, one of 
the daughters of the said Anthony (Annapolis, Chancery 
Records CD. 273). Committees from the TJpper and 
Lower Houses of Assembly met occasionally at Mark Cor- 
dea's house (Md. Arch, vii: xiii). 

Anthony and Hester LeCompte had issue : * 

2. i. John, 2 b. 1662: d. circa 1705.

Maryland, and died 1704/5, in Dorchester county. His

(Annapolis Wills in. 455). 

He bequeathed to his son William, " Linkwoods " (250 
acres), at the head of Transquaking, formerly belonging to 
Dr. Robert Winsmore: to son Philemon, " LeCompte's 
Adventure/' at the head of Ingram's Creek: to sons An- 
thony and John (equally), part of 200 acres (unnamed)

Creek and the northwest fork of Nanticoke River: to son

"LeCompte's Delight" (50 acres) and " Indian Ridge" 

* The source of a good deal of the following data relating to the LeCompte 
family of Maryland is an old manuscript record, said to have been com- 
piled in 1819, but the writer of this sketch can not vouch for its accuracy, 
except in so far as he has been able to verify the same from authoritative 
sources (F. B. C.).

ant's death" (Lib. PC. 516).

3. Moses LeCompte 2 (Anthony 1 ) was born in Maryland 
and died in 1720, in Dorchester County. According to a 
family record compiled in 1819, Moses LeCompte became 
partially blind at 18 or 19 years of age, and altogether so 
at 22 or 23, although he was sent to England for treatment 
of his affliction. Blindness appeared in several later gen- 
erations of this branch of the family. 

The will of Moses LeCompte was made 1 January 1717, 
and proved 15 March 1720/1. He bequeathed to his sons 
Philip, Thomas and Samuel LeCompte, " all my lands I 
now live on, but if it please God any more of my children 
should lose their sight except my sons Moses LeCompte 
and Peter LeCompte, that my said children so losing their 
sight should be equal partners in my said lands with my

ing of the Society was called to order at 8.30 o'clock. Vice-

" It is with great pleasure that the Maryland Society of the 
Colonial Dames of America will have the privilege this evening

MABYXAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 



of presenting to the Maryland Historical Society a valuable old 
coin, which has come into our possession, through the courtesy 
of Judge Henry Stockbridge. This copper six pence " trial 
piece " is said to be very rare, and we have requested Mr. Louis 
H. Dielman, to make the presentation in the name of the 
Society. Mr. Dielman needs no introduction to the Maryland 
Historical Society." 

In formally presenting the coin on behalf of the Colonial 
Dames, Mr. Dielman made a statement concerning the colonial 
coinage of Lord Baltimore and the varieties known to be in 
existence. 

In moving a vote of thanks to the Maryland Society of 
Colonial Dames for the beautiful and valuable coin presented 
to the Society, Judge Stockbridge gave a most interesting 
account of various aspects of Maryland Colonial Coinage, call- 
ing special attention to the beauty, value and rareness of the 
coin which the Maryland Society of Colonial Dames was 
presenting to the Historical Society. 

While still under the head of miscellaneous business, Mr. 
Douglas H. Thomas took the floor and stated that it gave him 
great pleasure indeed to make an announcement to the Society. 
Mr. Thomas said that several months ago Mrs. Mary Washing- 
ton Keyser had spoken to him about her desire to erect a 
memorial to her late husband, Mr. H, Irvine Keyser. After 
careful consideration of the matter she came to the conclusion 
that she desired to offer a home to the Maryland Historical 
Society. Judge Stockbridge was called into consultation and 
various plans for the purchase and improvement of the property 
at the south-west corner of Park Avenue and Monument Street 
were considered. Mr. Thomas then read the letters from Mrs. 
Keyser, printed in full in the December issue of the Magazine. 

Judge Stockbridge spoke as follows : 
"Mr. President: 

" For a number of years this Society has been longing and 
hoping for a new home. The means available for procuring 



PBOCEEDINGS OF THE SOCIETY.

it have seemed to be beyond our reach. During the lifetime of 
our late President, Mr. Cohen, the location at the southwest 
corner of Monument Street and Park Avenue was considered 
and felt to be a most desirable one; but the cost of that lot, 
together with the cost of the erection of a suitable building on 
it for housing the priceless collections of this Society, has 
seemed to place it beyond the possibility of our grasp. 

" By the munificent offer which has just been tendered to 
this Society by Mrs. Keyser, through Mr. Thomas, that which 
has hitherto seemed scarcely more than a dream is now virtually 
placed at our disposal. I am sure that I but voice the senti- 
ment of every member present when I say that this Society 
entertains a deep feeling of gratitude to Mrs. Keyser and that 
it will be the pleasure of this organization to do everything 
which lies in its power to bring to full fruition the desires in 
every respect of the generous donor. 

" There was one condition attached to Mrs. Keyser's tender 
which Mr. Thomas overlooked in the announcement which he 
has just made, namely, that no encumbrance or lien should 
ever be placed upon the property, and this is a condition so 
reasonable and moderate that I am sure it will readily be 
acceded by all. There is another condition, not imposed by 
Mrs. Keyser through feelings of delicacy, but which it seems 
to me this Society should none the less regard as a condition of 
the gift, and that is, that there should be raised a permanent 
endowment fund sufficient that the income of it should be ade- 
quate to care for the ordinary maintenance expense of the 
building placed and to be placed upon this lot, less than this it 
seems we should not do, and that a failure to do it would evince 
a lack of appreciation of the gift now made. To that end I 
desire to offer certain resolutions, the second and third of which 
will of course be dependent upon the adoption of the first." 

[Printed in full in December Magazine.'] 

Vice-President Harris voiced the feeling of surprise and very 
great happiness with which the Society received notice of this 
most helpful and munificent gift and expressed his regrets that

President Warfield had been prevented from being present 
upon such a happy and epoch-making occasion in the history of 
the Society. 

An interesting paper was read by Dr. Bernard C. Steiner 
entitled, "A New Englander's Southern Trip in 1833 ; Henry 
Barnard's First Experience with the South." This paper gave 
a delightful account of certain aspects of life in the South 
before the War. At the conclusion of Dr. Steiner's address, 
upon motion of Major Pegram, a vote of thanks was extended 
to Dr. Steiner. 

There being no further business before the Society, the meet- 
ing adjourned at 10.30 o'clock. 

Meeting of December 11, 1916. — The regular monthly meet- 
ing of the Society was called to order at 8.30 p. m. with Presi- 
dent Warfield in the chair.

proved with corrections.

Under the head of necrology, the Recording Secretary re- 
ported the death of John J. Donaldson, on November 19th, 
1916, Richard Bernard on November 21, 1916, Edwin Schenck, 
Sr., on November 18th, 1916, Alfred Z. Hartman on December 
1st, 1916 and Henry C. Matthews on December 6th, 1916. 
President Warfield dwelt tip on his long and intimate associa- 
tion with Mr. Donaldson and referred to his unusual qualities 
of force and culture. 

General Trippe on behalf of the Committee appointed to 
secure a roster of the Maryland soldiers at the Battle of Long 
Island, reported that he had the roster of four companies but 
that the roster of Captain Veasey^s Company is still missing. 
He referred to the fact that out of 400 soldiers who were in 
that battle, 276 were killed in it. 

Mr. Dielman stated that Dr. J. Hall Pleasants was very 
anxious to see that the second volume of the Early Court Pro- 
ceedings of Baltimore County was indexed, and that if the 
Society would request the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City 
to turn over temporarily the records to the Society to be copied, 
Dr. Pleasants would see that none of the involved expense 
would fall on the Society. Judge Dawkins and Mr. Leigh Bon- 
sal discussed the proposition somewhat at length. 

The following resolution was adopted: 

"Resolved that the Secretary be requested to write to the 
Supreme Bench of the City of Baltimore, asking for the tem- 
porary deposit of the first Court record with the Society for the 
purpose of indexing. The record to be returned to the Court 
immediately on the completion of the index." 

Mr. Leigh Bonsai called the attention of the Society to the 
Marriage Licenses of Baltimore from 1777-1851. He stated 



64 



MARYLAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 



that it would be a valuable acquisition to the library if they 
were indexed and a copy of the index placed here. He under- 
stood that Mr. Little was going to make an index of them and 
suggested that we make an effort to obtain a copy. Mr. Bonsai 
was appointed to take up the matter with Mr. Little and report 
at the next meeting. 

Mr. Dielman called attention to four interesting and valu- 
able acquisitions to the collections of the Society. They were 
as follows : 

1. Photograph from a painting of Augustin Herman. 

2. Photograph of the first fire engine at Annapolis. 

3. Ballot cast for Abraham Lincoln in 1864 by a soldier, being 

probably the only ballot in existence which was cast and 
counted in that Presidential campaign. 

4. Civil War Scrap Book made by the late Lennox Birckhead. 

The following motion was made by Mr. Duvall : 

" Kesolved, that the Eesolutions passed and adopted by The 
Maryland Historical Society, at its meeting on the 14th day of 
April, 1913, for the removal of the home of the Society to 
another location, and the appointment of a Committee to devise 
ways and means and adopt plans to increase the endowment 
fund of the Society, and to secure funds to purchase or acquire 
a site and improve the same, and to purchase or acquire such 
a site and improve the same, and to join with the Trustees 
of the Athenaeum in selling and conveying the lot of ground 
and building now occupied and used by the Society at St. Paul 
and Saratoga Streets, and with power to appoint sub-committees 
and to do all other acts necessary in the premises ; and all and 
every part of the said Eesolutions, be and they are hereby 
rescinded and annulled." 

Mr. Howard in seconding the motion expressed the view that 
the activity of the Committee for Endowment purposes had 
stimulated interest generally in the condition of the Society. 
The motion was passed unanimously.

The following motion by Judge Dawkins, seconded by Mr. 
Duvall "was passed : 

"Resolved, that Messrs. Francis B. Culver, William H. 
Lytle and Edward Ingle be and they are hereby elected a com- 
mittee to suggest names of officers and members of the various 
committees to be submitted for nomination at the regular 
monthly meeting of the Society on the evening of J anuary 8th, 
1917." 

The Society then had the pleasure of listening to a very 
interesting paper by John E. Semmes on the life of John H. 
B. Latrobe. Mr. Semmes read extensively from Mr. Latrobe's 
Journal and from his own biography in reference to Mr. 
Latrobe's activity in the Maryland Colonization Society and 
the American Colonization Society of which Mr. Latrobe was 
president some thirty years ago. Upon the conclusion of this 
most interesting paper, which is one of a series which Mr. 
Semmes is reading to the Society from the Biography of Mr. 
Latrobe, General Trippe moved that a vote of thanks be ten- 
dered Mr. Semmes for the pleasure which he had afforded the 
Society. 

There being no further business before the Society, the meet- 
ing adjourned at ten-thirty o'clock. 

Meeting of January %th, 1917. — The regular monthly meet- 
ing of the Society was called to order by President Warfield at 
8,15 o'clock. 

The following active members were elected: 

Mr. J. Mercer Garnett Mr. Eush W. Davidge Smith 

Mr. Charles M. Keyser Mr. W. Irvine Keyser

The following letter from Mr. Bonsai was read : 

" Baltimore, Dec. 13, 1916. 

" Dear Governor Warfield : 

"lam writing a short note to let you know what I have done 
in regard to getting the Clerk of the Superior Court to make 
new indexes for the old marriage records in the Supreme Court 
from 1775 to 1851. 

" I first wrote to Mr. Stephen C. Little, stating of what great 
value the marriage records would be if arranged alphabetically 
and according to the vowel system, and they should be indexed 
also under the name of the woman as well as the man, and 
expressed the hope that when the work was done that a carbon 
copy could be had for the Maryland Historical Society. I 
have, today, had a talk with Mr. Little and I was very much 
pleased with his attitude, and he indicated that he thought that 
he would be able to do the work as desired ; that he would not 
be able to take the matter up finally until after January 1st, 
but would talk with me again at that time. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Leigh Bonsai,." 

Upon motion of Mr. Bonsai, the Society voted its thanks to 
Mr. Little for the interest which he had taken in the matter. 
Mr. Bonsai made a further motion that a committee of five be 
appointed by the President to see Comptroller Mullen and to 
request him to authorize the copying of the records under con- 
sideration. The motion was duly passed, whereupon President 
Warfield appointed the following as the committee: Leigh 
Bonsai, Chairman, Joseph Y. Brattan, Judge Walter I. Daw- 
kins, Eichard M. Duvall, Euxton M. Eidgely. 

Under the head of necrology, Eecording Secretary Badcliffe 
referred to the death of Mr. Moses E. Walter, on December 
28th, 1916. Mr. Walter had become a member of the Society 
on May 4th, 1883, on the nomination of the late Mendes Cohen. 
At the time of his death, Mr. Walter was a member of the 
Committee on the Library.

The following letter from Mrs. Keyser was read by Eecord- 
ing Secretary Radcliffe:

" Complying with my offer of a Memorial to Mr. H. Irvine 
Keyser, that was graciously approved, I am herewith forward- 
ing to you the Deed of Gift. I have the same drawn to read

a With great pleasure I will see that its provisions are carried 
out.

of acknowledgment which he had sent Mrs. Keyser : 

"December 20, 1916. 

"Mrs. Mary Washington Keyser, 

" Dear Mrs. Keyser : 

" Your letter of yesterday to the President and Board of

Historical Society to acknowledge with grateful appreciation 
the receipt of your letter and deed and to advise you that they

ing of the Society is the proper body to take definite action in 
regard to a matter of such great importance. 

Very respectfully,

President Warfield then requested Judge Stockbridge to 
read the deed of gift from Mrs. Keyser. Judge Stockbridge 
thereupon read the deed which was worded as follows: 

" This Deed made this 17th day of December, nineteen hun- 
dred and sixteen, by Mary Washington Keyser, widow, of Bal- 
timore City, Maryland, of the first part ; to the Maryland His-

in addition to the building now upon said lot ; so that said pre- 
mises may be owned, used and enjoyed by said party of the

the said Maryland Historical Society, and for containing its 
library and other collections and records, and as the site and 
location of said Society, in order that the same may remain as 
a memorial to the said H. Irvine Keyser (but nothing herein 
shall prevent the party of the second part from permitting the 
occasional use of the halls or rooms of the building on said lot 
for purposes deemed consistent with the objects of said party of

any of the conditions above stated, it shall and may be lawful

Judge Stockbridge made a very interesting statement also in 
regard to the development of the plans which Mrs. Keyser has 
in mind for the improvement of the property which is to be 
the new home of the Society. In doing so, he referred to the

Under the head of miscellaneous business. President War- 
field called attention to the fact that according to the By-Laws 
of the Society, nominations should be made at that meeting

Latrobe. Mr. Semmes gave a most interesting and instructive 
account of the early days of the foundation of the Maryland 
Institute which was the result very largely of the labors of Mr. 
Latrobe. He also spoke of Mr. Latrobe's connection with the 
American Historical Society and his relations with Mr. John 
P. Kennedy and other men of letters during his career as law- 
yer, painter, architect, poet and as the author of the classic work 
on the Justice of the Peace. Upon the conclusion of Mr. 
Semmes' paper, General Trippe voiced the feeling of apprecia- 
tion and gratitude of the Society to Mr. Semmes for the pleasure 
which his address had afforded. 

The Society adjourned at 10.15 p. m. 

Meeting of February 12th, 1917. — The regular monthly 
meeting of the Society was called to order at the home of the 
Society at 8.30 p. m. with President Warfield in the chair. 

In the absence of the Secretary, Vice-President Stockbridge 
served as Corresponding Secretary. 

Miss Harriett P. Marine presented three handsome volumes 
entitled "Art Essays," by Virginia Lowman Hoult, on behalf 
of the American Daughters of the ^Revolution. At the request 
of the chair Miss Marine explained the character of the work. 
She stated that copies of the work are not for sale, but are issued 
by Mr. Hoult at his personal expense for private distribution 
as gifts. 

Upon motion of Judge Stockbridge, the Society expressed 
its thanks to Mr. Cornelius Hoult and to the Daughters of 
the American Eevolution for their interest through Miss Ma- 
rine in securing copies of his work for our library. 

The donations to the cabinet, which had been presented by 
Mr. George Warfield, were described by Vice-President Stock- 
bridge. These included a cane made by his brother from 
wood taken from the steamer Cumberland which was sunk by 
the Merrimac. These gifts also included two large medallions, 
one containing a representation of the siguing of the Declara- 
tion of Independence and another an imprint of the language 
thereof.

Judge Stockbridge presented the following letter from Mrs. 
Keyser : 

"Dear Judge Stockbridge: 

" Herewith are the plans of the New Library that you 
kindly offered to explain at the meeting this evening of The 
Maryland Historical Society. 

" It has meant much to me that this Memorial should be 
my own work. Therefore, I have devoted much time and 
thought in my interest in each minute detail. 



74 



MARYLAND HISTOBICAL MAGAZINE. 



" I now feel that the best that is possible has been accom- 
plished: for this site and the dimensions to be builded on. 

a While communicating with the main house, they should 
not be attached. 

" The Library will be strictly and entirely fireproof, beside 
conforming as nearly as compatible with the old structure, 
in order that neither should suffer by contact. 

" They will both be brick and marble, severe and dignified 
in outline, etc. 

" You will observe that since our last interview, I have 
placed over the windows in the Picture Gallery the " Arms of 
Maryland " and on either side the dates of the Society. 

" Thanking you for your kind interest and assistance 
throughout my undertaking, I am, 

" Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Mary Washington Keyser. 
104 West Monument St. 
February 12, 1917." 

The Society then had the pleasure of examining a dozen or 
more blue prints showing in detail the plans for the improve- 
ment of the property which is to be the new home of the 
Society. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned. 



ANNUAL MEETING 

The annual meeting of the Maryland Historical Society, 
held on February 12th, 1917, was called to order at 8.30 p. m. 
with President Warfield in the chair. 

Mr. John E. Sanford was selected as presiding officer and 
George L. Eadcliffe as secretary of the meeting. The chair- 
man, upon finding that a quorum was present, began the 
regular course of business. The list of nominations for offi- 
cers, trustees of the Athenaeum and members of the various 
committee were read by Mr. Eadcliffe. The Chair appointed 



PROCEEDINGS OF THE SOCIETY. 75 

Mr. Samuel B. Cator and G. H. Strickland as tellers of elec- 
tion. As there was no contest for any of the offices, the secre- 
tary was directed to cast the ballot of the Society for each one 
of the candidates for the position for which he had been 
nominated. This was done. 

President Warfield, speaking for the Council, gave a brief 
account of the work accomplished by the Society during the 
year just ended. He said: 

"This year 1916 will stand out in the annals of the Mary- 
land Historical Society as the most notable one in its history 
since 1843, when it was organized and steps were taken to 
build this beautiful home. The event which marks this as a 
memorable year was the magnificent gift made by Mrs. Mary 
Washington Keyser of a new home for the Society, centrally 
located on the corner of Park Avenue and Monument Street. 
This home was given by Mrs. Keyser as a, memorial to her late 
husband, H. Irvine Keyser, Esquire, who became an active 
member of the Society in 1873. It will be a beautiful and 
enduring monument to Mr. Keyser and will perpetuate his 
memory in a most classic and historic way, associating more 
closely his name with the proud and sacred records of Mary- 
land history. 

"Mrs. Keyser, by a deed dated December 17th, 1916, 
conveyed this property to the Society, reserving the right to 
construct and complete, at her own cost, a fire-proof addition 
or library in the rear of the building now on said lot, in which 
to keep the valuable books, paintings, works of art and rare 
and priceless historic documents owned by the Society. The 
erection of this building is being done under the personal super- 
vision of Mrs. Keyser. She has engaged experienced archi- 
tects with whom she has visited a number of up-to-date library 
buildings of other historical societies. 

" Our Society is fortunate in having a benefactor who is 
giving her time and exercising her good taste and judgment 
in the erection and equipment of a new home, which she pro- 



76 



MARYLAND HISTORICAL MAGAZINE. 



poses shall be equal in every respect to the home of other 
notable historical societies. 

" This new home will increase the ability of the Society 
to develop its historic work. The patriotism of Mrs. Keyser 
imposes upon the members of this Society, as well as upon 
every public-spirited citizen of this state and city, the sacred 
duty of providing an endowment fund large enough to yield 
a sufficient income for the upkeep of this new home and for 
the enlargement of the work of the Society. We should to- 
night dedicate ourselves to this patriotic work and solemnly 
resolve that we will not cease our efforts until we have raised 
such a fund. 

"The Treasurer's report, submitted herewith, and which 
gives in detail the receipts and disbursements, shows that the 
gross revenue from all sources amounted to $6,319.85. The 
receipts from membership dues were $3,167.00, an increase 
of $468,00 over last year. This demonstrates the healthy 
growth of the Society. 

" It gives me pleasure to state that wc elected during 1916 
one hundred and twenty-seven (127) active members and that 
the Society now has a total membership of 766, which is the 
largest in its history. When we occupy our new home we 
should have a membership of at least fifteen hundred, and I 
ask your earnest co-operation in bringing about such a result. 

" I submit reports of the several standing Committees, which 
give in detail the work accomplished by these Committees and 
through them by the Society. They will be published in full 
in our Magazine and they should be carefully read by all of 
the members." 

The President, in concluding, spoke feelingly of the asso- 
ciations and memories which cluster about the beautiful old 
room in which the Society has met for seventy-two years. He 
referred to the fact that he had been attending meetings of the 
Society for thirty-eight years, and confessed that a feeling of 
sadness filled his heart as he realized that this would be the 
last annual meeting in the old home.

Keport of the Trustees of the Athenaeum for 1916. 

The annual report of the Trustees of the Athenaeum was 
made by Mr. J. Appleton Wilson, their chairman, as follows : 

The minor repairs have been attended to during the past 
year, and in May the yard on the West of the building was 
made more presentable, the brick walls painted, the decayed 
wood capping removed and glazed terra cotta laid in cement 
substituted, the iron hand rail to rear steps was renewed and 
the rails and gateway cleaned off and well painted. At the 
same time, the yard wall on the North side of building was 
repaired and the entire wood capping repaired and painted. 
During the year a number of the sash cords which had worn 
out were renewed with chains. In October the railing to the 
area on the Saratoga Street side was broken away by an auto- 
mobile crashing into it. The name of the owner of the machine

was ascertained and we have sent him the bill for the repairs, 
but so far without securing payment. 

We have examined the insurance policies covering this build- 
ing and contents, and we have at present $40,000 on the build- 
ing, $25,000 on books, manuscripts, maps, etc., $6,500 on 
movable furniture, $6,000 on paintings, and $500 on casts and 
statuary, a total of $78,000. We also have new policies on 
the house, 201 West Monument Street, for $30,000, and on 
the rear building for $3,000, all expiring on December 22, 
1919. 

Respectfully submitted. 
J. Appleton Wilson", 

Chairman. 

Report of Committee on Art Gallery 
Gentlemen : 

The Committee on the Art Gallery begs leave to report 
that there were no additions to the gallery during the past 
year; and there were few, if any, pictures deposited with the 
Society. This is probably accounted for by the fact that the 
practice of accepting articles of little or no merit has been 
discontinued, and the committee recommends that the future 
policy of the Society in regard to the gallery should be to re- 
ceive for deposit only paintings and prints of intrinsic merit 
or historic value. In other words, nothing should be received 
that the committee does not deem worthy to be exhibited. 

Very respectfully, 

RUXTON" M. RlDGELY, 

Acting Chairman.

Report oe Committee on Publication 
Gentlemen : 

The Publication Committee respectfully proposes the adop- 
tion of the following resolution : 

Resolved — That the Magazine Account be credited with the 
sum of $48 for the cost of printing the annual report of the 
Society and the list of members, and the amount charged to 
General Expenses ; and that it be also credited, in accordance 
with the terms of the deed of gift of the late Mr. George 
Peabody, and of the resolution of the Society adopted January 
3, 1867, with the sum of $431.50, being one-half the income

for the current year of the investments of the Peabody fund; 
and that the Magazine Account be then closed by appropriate 
entries in the usual manner. 

The Committee on Publication respectfully reports that dur- 
ing the year it has caused to be prepared, four numbers of the 
Maryland Historical Magazine under the editorship of Louis 
H. Dielman. The contents of the Magazine have been varied 
and some of the Articles printed have been quite important. 
Both as a medium for informing the members of the Society 
of its activities and through the publication of interesting ma- 
terial upon the history of the State, the Magazine performs 
very useful functions. 

The much regretted death of Clayton C. Hall, Esq., Editor 
of the Maryland Archives, and Chairman of the Committee, 
caused a reorganization of the Committee, with Samuel K. 
Dennis, Esq., as Chairman and John M. Vincent, Ph. D., as 
member of the Council, while Bernard C. Steiner, Ph.D., suc- 
ceeded to the position of Editor of the Archives, and prepared 
for publication Volume 36 of the Series. This volume ap- 
peared in the beginning of November, and contains the Acts 
and Proceedings of the General Assembly from 1727-1729, to- 
gether with a number of Acts passed between the years 1716 
and 1726, but not previously in the Archives. The value of 
this series to all persons who have occasion to study the Pro- 
vincial History of the State, increases with each additional 
volume. 

The receipts and disbursements on Magazine Account, as 
exhibited to this Committee by the Treasurer of the Society, 
were as follows: 

Disbursements. 

Vol. X: Cost of printing No. 4 (December No. 1915, includ

At the January Session of the General Assembly in 1916, 
the usual appropriation of $2,000 a year for a period of two 
years for the publication of the Archives was made. This ap- 
propriation, however, is now made in the General Appropria- 
tion Bill, instead of by Special Act, and is payable quarterly 
instead of semi-annually. The deficiency in the payment of 
the appropriation by the General Assembly in 1914 was paid 
by the State during last summer. 

The following statement from the Treasurer presents this 
account in detail:

The Associate Members on December 31, 1916, were 47, and 
12 persons were elected in 1916, which totaled 59 members.

fore, there were on the Associate Roll on December 31, 1916, 
55 members. 

The Life Membership List had a gain of one member. 

The number of persons elected during the year of all classes 
was 1 Life, 12 Associate and 127 Active, making a total of 
140 persons elected during the year 1916.
